Chronic Snoring Prevents Quality Sleep

For some, snoring is an occasional occurrence after a particularly exhausting day or a few too many drinks. But for those who endure it consistently, night after night, snoring creates significant disruption to their lives, relationships, and overall sense of health and well-being.

It’s a story we hear every day from patients who visit our office: “My significant other won’t sleep in the same room, let alone the same bed as me. I need to get my snoring under control and nothing I’ve tried so far has helped.” When we dig deeper, we also often find out that the patient is suffering from a host of uncomfortable symptoms and even serious health concerns.

Snoring as a Sign of Sleep Apnea

Snoring is often an indication of a sleep condition known as obstructive sleep apnea that causes sufferers to stop breathing repeatedly throughout the night. The condition occurs when the tongue, throat muscles and/or throat tissues relax and block the proper flow of air. Snoring is a result of air being forced through a narrowed airway.
